Discourses on the role of the state in development have been characterised by the state-market dichotomy across the ideological spectrum. On the one hand, this dichotomy is seen as rooted in market fundamentalism and therein used to make the case for the supremacy of the market over the state. But others have shown that it is present also in more progressive arguments for state-led development. This seminar reflects on how analysis that is grounded in Africa’s empirical experiences of transition problematises strict delineations between these milieus.
